at home for joining us this week. one story list week almost made it into the best new thing in the world today but got cut at the last minute because something better came along. a story about an arkansas high school marching band turning up at the house of one of their player's grandmothers because grandmother was too ill to go to the game. i still love that story. go, rogers heritage high school. what roger heritage high school of arkansas pushed out of the best new thing in the world segment that day, what got cut from the marching band segment, is what mediaite highlighted as when horrible people unite. when the president of iran spoke at the united nations last week the main news he made, of course, is that everybody walked out on him again like they pretty much always do now whenever he speaks in public. quoting from "the guardian" newspaper reporting on the walkout, u.s. diplomats were first to leave when ahmadinejad referred to the mysterious september 11th incident as a pretext to attack afghanistan and iraq. the mysterious september 11th incident. good-bye, mahmoud. see you lat

at the incredible energy in our own mad as hell, get money out campaign. a geyser of energy is erupting around us. we believe this amendment is the harness to take it forward as we near our first-ever digital double of 200,000. we head towards 400 from there. more on that later, but we begin with mad as hell in lower manhattan. what a day. after winning their fight against being thrown out of so-called park cleanup, the newly empowered occupiers, with thousands descending in support, left the park and headed for wall street. hundreds hopping police barriers, clashing with cops. more than a dozen arrested. but as we know, it is by no means just new york at this point. there are, in fact, occupations in nearly 1,700 cities worldwide, with talk tomorrow of growing to be one of the largest global protests ever. here in the u.s., the protests are largely being led by young americans, many who are drowning in college loan debt. they were promised a college degree was the best way to get ahead. in fact, they were fearmongered into doing it, as they pursued the prestige rather than the learning. but the
an assassination plot, which the u.s. says was cooked up by elements, quote, inside the iranian government. what that means is a subject of wild speculation at this hour. whatever it was, it was a plan to attempt to kill the saudi ambassador to the united states on u.s. soil, and it includes the planned use of bombs and a foiled murder-for-hire plot that involves an opium deal with a mexican drug cartel. can't make it up, and it is, indeed, both terrifying and perplexing all at the same time. we begin with nbc news justice correspondent, pete williams. pete, we heard the attorney general say this was intended to be an opening act of a broader plot. what, exactly, is the quality of the information that we have that is tying this to whether it's the iranian government, the mexican drug cartels, and all the players that are sort of being whipped around right now. >> reporter: well, just those players that we know of. and it's a very straightforward line, according to the government. they say this whole plot was cooked up in the spring of this year, and the central character is a man named monsieur
editor. thank you both for joining us. let's replay what we know at this point to be reported. a lot of this gun battle happened in sirt. we know the rebels focused long on that part of libya and now it is reported the body of gadhafi, his son and one official. >> i have been speaking to the rebel standers and the details will emerge in the coming hours. there is particularly two brigades involved in this attack and it took place as we understand it in an animal feed factory in the southwestern part of the city of sirt. they noticed suspicious activity and reports of them trying to leave sirt. they engaged these armed men and they didn't know gadhafi could have been in the building or in the vicinity. >> they no idea gadhafi was with that group. >> right. it has been under somewhat of a siege with the rebels. they were prepared that somebody cab trying to escape. that's what they did. they engaged the people and at the end of the fight that lasted from 30 to 45 minutes. they had ka dafy in their hands. >> what are about the nato air strike that took place around the same time and tar
rather than prepare for the weather would be irresponsible. joining us from d.c., luke russert and jonathan capehart. good morning -- it's afternoon, 30 seconds after. luke, i'll begin with you, what is the reaction to the president today. >> reporter: well, the reaction of the capitol hill, john boehner said he's trying to work with the president to find common ground on solutions they can both support to help the economy. the house passed today that one part of the president's jobs bill, that repeal, 3% holding tax that aç lot of businesses were unhappy with. john boehner mentioned the free trade agreement. when it comes to what the president wants to do for the future of the country and what house republicans want to do, there is still a very deep divide. there's absolutely no appetite from house republicans for a big stimulus package. the president wants close to what the jobs bill was. even when broken in pieces it meets a brick wall. there's not a lot of appetite at the white house with the gop, talking about the forgotten 15 job creating measures. a lot of those have t
time. for more, let's bring in two experts on the region. with us one of the world's most distinguished war correspond epts, janine digiovanni. joining us from paris and the "new york times" columnist nick christoff. good afternoon to both of you. nick, a 42-year dictatorship broad to a bloody end. were you surprised at how gadhafi met his fate? >> well, it looked for a while as he might indeed be in sirte and seen that it was going to fall at some point. so in that sense it seemed more a matter of time, but it certainly is -- nobody wants to see his grave or anybody's grave, but it's a relief to everybody who has watched everything unfold. >> you watched the visit to libya and you describe a country haunted by the ghosts of gadhafi's reign of terror. is the widespread celebration a mark of how he terrorized his people? >> reporter: martin, i think we have to remember for 40 years, people were deeply traumatized by gadhafi. they lived in a world of silence and fear and a world where they cooperate speak and had no vote. they were terrified of being taken away and tortured and killed and

't want to work, you're just lazy and you are just irresponsible. they used to say lazy and shiftless. they did blame themselves. that's would you we're organizing and mobilizing all over america. mr. cain, we're going to change things, because we're going to start blaming ourselves for not doing more. joining me now, from wall street michael mulgrew, president of the united federation of teachers. michael, how does it look? >> it's looking night. i have to tell you, this is an amazing thing that's going on. two days ago we sent out notices, expecting a couple thousand of people. there were over 15,000 people easily filling up the square and marching down broadway. people say enough is enough. we want fairness, we're going to stand up until we get it. >> now, the fight is about economic inequality. i remember not long ago you, i and others marched down, talking about unions. now you are there, as unions supporting the occupy wall street. this seems to be taking form for those that have variety of political perations, but are united around 1% of this country should not be controlling t
destruction program. in return what u.s. trade ford that was bringing gadhafi in from the cold. we pretended like gadhafi wasn't a murderous rogue dictator and narcissistic freak show, and a pretend relationship. a facade to treat libya like a normal country with a normal president. but libya, under moammar gadhafi, was not a normal country and he was an normal president. libya under gadhafi had blown up a 747 over the town of lockerbie. all 259 people on the plane were killed. the people on the ground were killed by falling debris. he blew up a passenger jet in 1989. another 170 people killed there. behind the hijacking of an italian cruise ship and in 1984, someone inside the libyan embassy in london fired at protesters, shot at protesters and killed a police officer. gadhafi is also reported to have had forces storm a prison near tripoli and massacre more than a thousand prisoners there. but then the american relationship with gadhafi went from us bombing libya in 1986 because he was that kind of country and that kind of tyrant, it went from us bombing them in 1986 to this kind of thing.
's no doubt we did exactly what we said we were going to do in libya. >> reporter: it was a limited u.s. role when the rebels faced massacre and pushing other nato nations to take over. rebels say he was shot in the head in a cross fire. this is closure to the loved ones of americans remembered at this monument in syracuse, new york, killed when the libyan dictator allegedly had their u.s. jetliner blown up in 1988. >> to finally get the man that ordered the bombing of pan am 103 is justice. >>> u.s. officials worry any aircraft missiles are unaccounted for here, islamic radicals could capitalize on the chaos. the revolution has won said president obama, but there's more to do. >> to secure dangerous materials andh) of all libians. >> reporter: two things libya has to learn with gadhafi dead. i'm steve handelsman, nbc news, washington. >>> early this morning secretary of state hillary clinton who had just been to tripoli just days ago responded to gadhafi's killing saying it was a new era for libya. speaking from islamabad she also turned up the heat on pakistan saying there would be a very b
show do creator is here to talk about it all. >> great to have you with us. thank you for watching "the ed show." herman cain launched another tirade against the 99% movement. the former ceo of godfather's pizza blasted him last night. according to the associated press, herman cain called the occupy wall street protesters un-american. the pizzaman doesn't have a clue because he hasn't been there while herman cain has been touring the country on his presidential campaign/book tour i've been out there with the folks and i know they are not un-american. i'll let you be the judge. >> what this is the 99%. this is the vast majority of the american people. >> capital of the world is getting a lot of attention right now in terms of the mistreatment and the unfair burden that's being placed on working families. >> why are you i here? >> to tax the rich. tax the rich. they are not paying their fair share. >> they are not paying their fair share. i want our money back. >> there are republicans and this is not about a party. this is about a movement to take it back to the people. >> i'm here becau
an operating democratic government of sorts. now it's time for us to come out and maintain contact. we will have a massive contact or presence. they have a huge embassy and there will be a couple hundred military officers in the embassy to monitor foreign military sales. time to go. >> as you pointed out, the countless lives lost and you cannot put a dollar on that. when you look beyond the loss of life, the number, the dollar, $712 billion spent to date on the war in iraq. let me bring in richard engle. i heard you say something i thought was beautifully put when the news broke and said so many other presidents who wished they could bring troops home for the holidays. here we are at this point. >> for the troops are all home for the holidays and i assume he doesn't mean halloween, he will be accomplishing something that hasn't happened for nine years. or nearly nine years. it is very significant. people would like to see an end to the iraq war. i watched this war fatigue build in america. many iraqis are nervous. they like the idea of having a small american presence. a trip wire or s
iraqi freedom has been at considerable cost to the nation. over 4,400 u.s. military kill and 32,000 wounded, including over 1,000 amputees, all at a cost of american taxpayers of $712 billion. in his remarks the president made it clear he intends to end involvement in afghanistan in the not too distant future. >> the united states is moving forward from a position of strength. the war in iraq will come to an end by the end of this year. the transition in afghanistan is moving forward and our troops are finally coming home. >> then this pronouncement that military families have been waiting for for almost a decade. >> here at home, the coming months will be another season of homecomings. across america, our service men and women will be reunited with families. today i can say that our troops in iraq will definitely be home for the holidays. >> as the president pulls down the curtain on one of the longest and most divicive conflicts in u.s. history, what is the reaction from congress? karl levin is the chairman of the senate arms services committee and joins us from capitol hill.
to you at home for staying with us the next hour. former secretary of state condoleezza rice already published a memoir of her life. a book about growing up in segregated alabama, her rise to prominence as a russia scholar. her involvement with republican politics, her eventual ascendance to the highest ranks of the george w. bush administration. that book is already done. she published that book last year. but now condoleezza rice has published another one. a 734-page new book of which all 734 pages are apparently about her time in the bush white house. i have not read this book yet, you haven't read it yet either. we not have it yet. it is not out yet. i will read it as soon as it comes out and condoleezza rice, please do an interview with me on this show about your book. i promise i'll read your book, i promise it will be fun. i know you won't come. "the new york times" managed to get a copy of condoleezza rice's book early. the headline of their review of the book reveals the secret of all bush administration officials trying to ensure their careers do not die with the end of the
watching. dylan ratigan's here to take us forward. dylan? >> the vagaries of your opinion, sometimes, it's hard to tell where you're coming from, martin. that one was pretty clear-cut, i appreciate that. >> i'm damned with fake praise. thank you very much, dylan. >> i'll talk to you next time. the show starts right now. >>> well, good afternoon to you. nice to see you. i am dylan ratigan. it is a milestone monday for so many today. first, occupy wall street marking its one-month anniversary in occupation. more importantly, the movement has cemented itself as a worldwide aligned event. more on that a bit later. but we start off with our own milestone here at "the d.r. show," because over the weekend, we achieved our first-ever digital double. more than 200,000 of us joining in a partnership to simply get money out of politics, as a singular principle. as we've been saying, this is the beginning. our hope is that all of us will be able to join the debate on this proposed amendment and double our digital wave again and again, the 200, 400, 800, and so on, until we are massive
at getting, yes, more u.s. exports into south korea, panama, and colombia. what could be better than that? we'd be better off having a trade deal with california. there are more buyers for american products in california than there are with all three of those countries combined, and the only apparent benefit is the employment of north korean slaves and the ability to use bank secrecy laws in panama. doesn't sound like job creation to me. and while the rhetoric of free trade sells well, it just never seems to work out as promised, because it's not really free. it's kind of rigged, you know. the u.s. job gains tend to turn into the opposite, u.s. job losses. in fact, they had to pass a law to subsidize lost jobs on a bill that they said was going to create them. no joke! not to mention, obviously, the data from nafta, potentially wonderful ideas in global trade being corrupted by special interests that rig the system. and the auction that buys washington politics has convinced the pro-wrestlers down there that, for some reason, this is good politics, even if it's terrible policy to accept riggi
. >>> madame secretary, thank you for joining us. are you in herman cain's famously designated becky-becky-becky-stan. >> there's a zero, zero, zero chance i'm going to comment on republican politics, but i am in uzbekistan. >> we have mark haleprin. we also have the president of the council on foreign relations, richard hoss back with us. good to have you, richard. >> boy, hillary was at the top of her game yesterday, wasn't she? >> i thought she was great on "meet the press" and really seems like she has a handle on the situation. >> well, there's so many situations. >> so many. >> which -- i mean -- all the situations that people like herman cain don't have a grasp on. if you look at this past weekend. and look at all of the things that have gone down in the news, then you have -- you realize now is not the time to send an amateur to the white house. so whoever wins the republican nomination better have a firmer grasp on foreign affairs than the current front-runner. look, iraq, what does that mean? we're getting out of iraq. what is that going to mean for u.s. foreign policy? wha
room and announcing that as of the end of this year all of the u.s. troops will be out of iraq. all except for a handful or a small number protecting u.s. fa si facilities like the u.s. embassy. he said as promised, the iraq war -- america's war in iraq at least is over and the transition will be made to a new relationship with iraq's government. the reason for this withdrawal, despite secretary pennetta wanting to keep 3,000 or 4,000 troop there's as trainers past the end of this0Ñ!cjyear, the rn for not doing that is that iraq's parliament, iraq's government could not agree on granting legal immunity to american forces there. so they will be coming home. the president said they will be home for the holidays. jim miklaszewski is back with us from the pentagon. mik, this is a long history and it is the end of an era. >> absolutely. as chris matthews said earlier, the iraq war was unpopular from the beginning. there were many up on capitol hill and some even in the military at the time questioning really the wisdom of going into iraq while you were trying to fight a war in afghanist
to do violent things for money. that person turned out to be an under cover u.s. law enforcement agent from the drug enforcement administration and from that point on, this was a sting operation and everything that happened was monitored by law enforcement. two sets of wiring money to a bank account totalling $100,000 and discussing how they might do it and setting a bomb off in a restaurant in washington. all those things were done as the u.s. law enforcement watched interactions with the under cover source. what the two from iran were willing to do was astonishing because they were willing to blow up as many as it took to assassinate the ambassador. >> this is remarkable and what's the thinking behind deploying a mexican drug cartel ? >> simply this was apparently the idea. he said that or at least in discussion with the iranians in iran that they had the idea if you are looking for somebody who will commit crimes that were mercenaries that would do something like this violent for money and the place to go would be members of a drug cartel . one interesting point that is not immediat
hill. luke, democrats planned to use this against the gop during the election, saying that they have stopped jobs measures, stopped the creation of jobs. do republicans consider that? are they concerned about that at all? >> richard, this series of votes on the president's jobs bill really have been political more than anything else. it's well known that even if this bill were to pass the united states senate which is controlled by democrats, it would go nowhere in the house of representatives. it's controlled by republicans. what you're seeing is a series of votes squarely done for decision 2012 politics. last night, with all the republicans voted against it, you better believe democrat also make ads saying so and so running for president or senate or congress in the house, they voted against giving money to firefighters and teachers. they want to get these things they believe to be political viable, democrats do, they want republicans to vote against them and continue this moving forward. what's up next? we suspect there will be another smaller bit of the president's jobs bill this
like drill baby drill. chris joins us with the daily fix. how did that speech work for him today? >> you know, i think what he and his team are trying to do is find a public venue where he is more comfortable. he has been in this race and it has been defined by these four debates that we have had that he has participated in. it's not a good format for him. so i think what they are trying to do is as you said in the opening, push the restart button. give him a place to talk about energy. this is territory where he is somewhat comfortable and give speeches. he is doing more media appearances. i just think they are trying to get that negative perception that this is a falling stock away from him. >> and of course he used a tell prompter. so it all looked good, it played to his virtue. he did the morning shows today and this was matt lauer requesting him about the fact that his wife complained that he was brutalized by his faith. >> isn't it a bit hypocrite call to say you are targeted because of your faith but it was a surrogate for your campaign that introduced it in the first plac
's what they would have us believe. overseas, a big debt deal for the eurozone, writing down 50% of the greek debt, which 100% of which will never be paid, at the same time, inventing, literally inventing, much like our own federal reserve at the european stability fund, $1 trillion new that came from i don't know where, nobody does, to fund the bailout of the foreign debt, is the sovereign debt, here in europe. meantime, here at home, numbers on our gross sovereign product have an accelerate. keep in mind, the gdp is a number that dates to the depression era that simply numb measures the number of transactions in our country, but does not measure what those transaction is for. so a transaction that steals money is a equated to a transaction that creates value. in this instance, we're looking at extraction in this country, which looks like it's getting a little more busy. we've, of course, fired up the extraction machine again, using all of this invented money that's being funneled into our systems, the trillion dollars out of europe. and as evidenced by today's rally on wall st

. good evening, rachel. > thanks to you for staying with us the next hour. if you heard, word of the news tonight came for you on a device for which he was responsible. the iphone, the mac, the ipad. steve jobs was the man behind all of those. tonight, apple, the company he used to run announced steve jobs passed away at the age of 56. apple did not announce a cause of death, but it would be hard to characterize his death as entirely unexpected. mr. jobs stepped down from the company in august. back in 2009, of course, he underwent a liver transplant. and it was seven years ago that he underwent surgery for pancreatic cancer. just yesterday apple held a press conference unveiling its latest iphone. and i have to tell you, it was viscerally strange. really just profoundly odd not to see steve jobs up there on stage in his little black turtle neck and his jeans. as there were those years in the late '80s and early '90s when steve jobs worked somewhere else. despite that, when you thought of apple, you thought of steve jobs. we thought of apple a lot. just as much as apple was and still is,
of the pro-gadhafi strongholds in the ongoing civil war. as he tried to flee, nato air strikes and u.s. drones hit gadhafi's convoy. that much the u.s. has confirmed. gadhafi, apparently, however, survived the hit and was later found inside this drainage ditch. you may have seen this picture today. he was arrested from inside the ditch and then died while in custody. now, video of his final moments seems to back up the claim. some say gadhafi died from injuries sustained in the original air strike. otherwise say he was subsequently executed after they arrested him. regardless, the transitional government now has custody of gadhafi's body in misrata. celebrations breaking out almost immediately in tripoli and across libya. >> just this beautiful moment right now, i thought a dream just came through. >> we killed everyone like the gadhafi. >> all the world is suffering because he's doing -- because he was doing terrorist operations. and now we are happy. >> now comes the not-so-easy task of building a new country. three now, we have seen, go to this transitional state. but first, of cour
gadhafi. those reports unconfirmed by u.s. officials. these all coming from rebels. ap obtained this cell phone video from a rebel commander saying this shows gadhafi's body on the ground. we have not been able to independently confirm that. this picture taken a rebel commander's cell phone. neither u.s. officials have been able to verify this is indeed gadhafi. nonetheless, from the capital of tripoli to strongholds across the country, celebrations have broken out across libya. moments ago, secretary of state hillary clinton spoke about what this means from kabul. >> they made very clear they recognize they have a lot of work ahead of them. they have to try to unify the country, unify the militias under a unitary command. they have to disarm a lot of people who have acquired the thousands of weapons that gadhafi had stockpiled and that they worried that, if ga daf g were still at large, he would be waging guerrilla war against them. he would be recruiting mercenaries, paying with the gold that they believe he had absconded with. so if he is removed from the picture i think there's a big
not been confirmed by either the state department or the white house. senior u.s. officials are waiting. some visual confirmation of khaddafy's capture or death. until officials get that confirmation, either with an actual photograph or first-hand report from a u.s. asset they will not confirm anything. there are celebrations in the city of sirte this morning. it has been quite the last six months if you think about when all this started. i want to bring in two people here that are great experts on this stuff. steve clemmens and robin wright, from the woodrow wilson center. rob robin, you have sat face to face with moamar khaddafy. you were telling me you remember interviewing him back in 1980. this is a man who took power when richard nixon was president of the united states. i note the a.p. report, past reports, proven incorrect. nobody wants to jump to conclusion here, but. >> well he was forced out of power in tripoli. getting him was a long process of liberating libya. this is an important step whether he was captured or killed. the mere fact that they managed to take over his home

. and retired four-star general barry mccaffrey. obviously, part of the problem for the u.s. and the white house is in the past reports of gadhafi's death have proved to be exaggerated, shall we say. aiman, obviously, you spent a lot of time in that region. what are we hearing about what happened in libya? >> we are getting reports from sources in sirte and in tripoli that moammar gadhafi has been killed. the details of how he was killed remain conflicting. there's reports there was a convoy trying to leave sirte. there are also reports he was captured first on the ground in some kind of underground tunnel and then killed at the hands of the rebels that did capture him. we have reports that his son, one of the leaders of the paramilitary forces in libya was also captured. he'll be able to shed light on the final days and hours and indeed what happened. >> jamie, indeed, what's the importance and the significance as we look at the larger context of the arab spring? >> it's a very big day. it's hard to imagine a bigger day in the context of the arab spring. the uprising in libya in which the peopl
